Fun times in Ohio

Hello everyone!! Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I can’t believe I’m 21. I couldn’t ask for a better birthday present than having such amazing family and friends supporting me.

All is well here in the Ohio! Let me tell you all about Friday.

We met with our investigator Suzanne. We had prayed and prayed to know if it was the right time to ask her to be baptized. A lot of prayers and faith went into that very specific lesson we had on Friday with her. We were reading 2 Nephi 31. The spirit was very strong with the assurances that what we were reading was true.

Then we got to verse 10:

10 And he said unto the children of men: Follow thou me. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, can we follow Jesus save we shall be willing to keep the commandments of the Father?

We invited her to be baptized and with some tears and a smile came a "Yes." The date we are shooting for is May 16th! She came to church on Sunday and loved it. Please keep her in your prayers as she has taken this step of faith. I don’t think I’ll ever know what it’s like to be 80 years old and decide to be baptized into a different church. But that’s the miracle of the Restored Gospel!! The power of the Holy Ghost will testify to anyone who humbly seeks out the Lord’s truth.

I love you all!! Have a good week.
